It is onii of the needs of the tjmo, aud our largo cities could in no wise spare the complete news record of which thn .Sunday press is an imi>ortant part. It is now ruf^ardcd iis a hcttled question that tlio nilrogou of the atmosphere is tixc�l in the soil for the use of vegetation by the action of miortibes. anil that DO soil is destitute of these gornis. It is suggeste^l that the greater development of the microbes by farm-yard manures may explain the apparent HU|)e-riority of such fertilizers over artificial luanurej theoretically Osgood. ,\ Mi'iciMi wheel for road onginon has been devised by Mr. Isaac W. Hoiilton, an English mechanic. The rim of the wh^l is divided into cells containing loose-tltting wooden blooks, which prO' ject slightly beyond the face of the wheel and are Iwddetl at the inner end against some elastic sound-deadening material suoh as felt. Wheels so made do not slip, are oomjiaratively noiseless, and cut the road less than the old wheela.    _ Thr Amir of Afghanistan sleeih in a plain tent, eatabnt one anbatantial meal daily, with fruit as hia only other re-frMhment.aad rarely amokeii more, than two cigarettM in tlie day.

He may be a day laborer like Pat Grant, but if he has tometbipg to aay, and can say it in a way that will interest all the world, the newapapara will print hia artioles, and editora a thousand miles' dhitant will quote him, and make a place (or him i( he ia willing to take it. It ia the rule with moat banks to do no business with absolute strangers, and to require identifloation or at toast references. Sometimes wlien a man wanlato open an account he roaenta very bitterly the demand for an introduction. I( he would only consider the matter he would see hnw very im|>ortant the rule is. There are many reasons for it, but the chief hi to prevent a scheme which has frcqii^tly proved suoceasful. A member ot the gang will open an account, and pay in and draw oheoka in a moat regular manner for everal months. Then one day he will happen to be present when a stranger presentaa large oheok, the two will recogniie each other as old friends, and the rogue with an aooount will identify the rogue with the oheok, which may thm ont to be a (orgery. With all precaution aa to introduction and identification, frauds are ]iossible, but without ^mmmBM)l^:r.1M^�}� limf^w^A��m�f�,� and, as a natural result, frequent.

Jamea Etter, an old soldier who forever twantv years baa been one o( the dar watchman in tha Winder Bailding, which Is occnplad bv the Bnreau of the Steoad Auditor of tha Treasnry, relates with prido an intarastint experience ha bad ia 186:i. As be waa alone in the bnilding one snitry .Inly Handay morning, a tall, clerical-looking manenlereil from Bevea-tacnth Biroet and politely naked him whether Surgeon Bsrneawas in his office. He replied that Uames had not bsan there since the preceiling day. Tbe stranger tbsuked bim nnd retired, bnt ratnmed half an hour Istor with the same ioqniry. Again receiving s reply in the negativa, ho said: "I um Mr. Lincoln, the President. You allow me to take your place as wsrhman, while you go to Siiraeon Barnes' house nnil tell bim I waul to sea bim. Lot me hllve your badjje, snd I will sit right here in your chair snd ciirctnllv attend lo your duties till you come back.''' The votoran, in relating the story, saya that for a moment bo waa speechless from astonishment, bnt, quickly recovering himsulf, be pinned his badge on the coat of tba President of the United Htates und harried off after Dr. Barnes, whom he bronijbt back witb bim. *\Voll,'' said the President, as ho re-tiirneil tbe bsdgo to its rigbtfnl giosses-Hor, "I have proven true to my trust as yonr Hubstitutv, nnd nothing has gone wrong while you were away." The old watchman feels proud lo think that bo is tbe only policeman who was ever relieved by the Vtasident.

Tho following is fiom tho procecdinga of the Borliu Physiological Society: Starting with the observed fact that canaries, fed with csyeuno pepper, aciinire a mddy plumage, l)r. Ssnermaun han based upon It a HcieutitU- investigation of csna ries, fowls, pigeons, snd other birds From these be obtained the following re Halts: Feeding with jiepper only prodncei-nn effect when giveu to young birds lie-fore they monll: the lolorof the feather* of older birds cannot be affected. Moisture facilitates tbe change ot color to ruddy hna. which is agsin discharged nndei the intlunncc of sunlight and cold. \ portion of the couBlitnents ot cayenne pepper is quite inactive, sa, for instanea, piperin aud Hevaral axtractiTes; similarly the red coloring matter alone of the pepper has no effect on the color ot the foktbern. It Is rather the triolein, which occurs in the pepper in large qnan-titios, together witb tha eharsctaristic pigment, whiob brings about tbe change of color, by holdtug the ted pigment of tbe pepper in solution. Cilyoarina may be used instend of triolein lo bring about the Hatuo result. The same statement holds good with regard to the feeding of birds with sniline colors. Tho red pigment of tho pepper is also stored in the egg yelk as well aa in tbe feathers. Tbe first appearance of tbe pigment in tho yelk may be observed as a colored ring four days after the commencement of feeding witb the pigment dissolved in fnt. After a further two days' feeding tha whole yalk is colored. Abrapt Trnasitieaa.
